The Godless Spellchecker Podcast

The Godless Spellchecker Podcast is an award winning weekly sceptical show in a conversational, interview format hosted by Stephen Knight. We hear from leading public figures as well as people without a public profile that have equally valuable experiences and ideas to share. The goal is to amplify good ideas and scrutinise bad ones. I think we've all learned something here today.

I was lucky enough to sit down with the brilliant Matt Dillahunty (@Matt_Dillahunty) and Aron Ra (@Aron_Ra) at this year's QED Con in Manchester. We discuss the meaning and use of words such as Atheist/Agnostic. We touch on Humanism, William Lane Craig, Ray Comfort, President Obama and Chapel Hill. We'll also hear an explanation and deconstruction of the 'Kalam Cosmological Argument', plus much more!

Originally released April 2015

The excellent Dr. Christian Jessen (@DoctorChristian) joins me on this week's #GSPodcast. He'll be telling us all about the ridiculous notion of 'gay cures', what they involve and what motivates their proponents (SPOILER: religion). Dr Christian underwent some of these 'therapies' as part of his superb documentary 'Undercover Doctor: Cure Me I'm Gay'. Some are horrific, others are just plain absurd. He'll be guiding us through them and explaining why they're harmful and unscientific.

We also touch on the notion of 'no platforming', quackery, homeopathy, Embarrassing Bodies, the lack of 'out' professional football players and much, much more!
